> After searching for Konrad Hugo Skog for at least a decade I found him in the 1895-6 city directory for Ottawa.  The 1896-7 directory only lists his wife.  Since I have only found her listed as a widow since that time I now have proof that he did make it to N. America and was alive in Ottawa.  It is most likely that he died in Ottawa sometime between 1896-7.  I cannot seem to find a death record or obituary.  Can you suggest a site I can use to find this info?
